ManageEngine has been positioned in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Managementi (SIEM).

This is the third consecutive year that ManageEngine's SIEM solution, Log360, has been named in this report. A complimentary copy of the complete report is available at www.manageengine.com/log-management/gartner-siem-mq.html.

More enterprises than ever are jumping on the cloud bandwagon, as cloud services offer the speed and agility that's required to meet business goals efficiently. However, ensuring security for cloud and hybrid environments is still a challenge for many enterprises. SIEM solutions simplify this task by offering enterprises comprehensive security features for their IT environments from a single console.

"We at ManageEngine are focused on building a future-oriented, comprehensive yet simple-to-use SIEM solution that will meet the rapidly growing demands of enterprise security," said Manikandan Thangarajan, Director of Product Management at ManageEngine. "We want to equip contemporary and future SOCs with the ability to detect, respond to and mitigate sophisticated attacks with an advanced threat intelligence platform as well as seamlessly orchestrate security operations across on-premises, cloud and hybrid platforms. We believe Gartner's recognition is honoring our efforts on this constant evolution."
Highlights of Log360

Log360, ManageEngine's exhaustive yet easy-to-use SIEM solution, helps enterprises ensure security across on-premises and cloud environments. Log360's critical functions include its ability to be quickly deployed; capability to automatically discover and configure Windows infrastructure, network devices, and SQL databases for monitoring; ability to capture information using various methods; and use of automatic parsing.

In addition to being positioned in the Magic Quadrant for SIEM, Gartner also named ManageEngine (Log360) in its 2018 Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Managementi report, which extends the Magic Quadrant analysis for deeper insights into providers' product and service offerings.

Log360 features include:

- Support for cloud monitoring: Analyze and detect suspicious events in IaaS platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure in addition to SaaS applications such as Salesforce.

- Security auditing of physical and virtual infrastructures: Audit volumes of log data generated by various sources - including Windows and Linux servers, EMC and NetApp file servers, Active Directory environments, and VMware and Hyper-V machines - and turn that data into actionable insights.

- Intuitive and real-time security analytics: Use over 1,000 prepackaged report templates, interactive dashboards, and alert profiles, all of which cover the basic security, auditing and compliance needs of most enterprises. These components provide immediate insight into suspicious events and facilitate quick decision-making.

- Advanced threat detection: Detect malicious traffic in the network and stop potential network intrusions at their earliest stages thanks to STIX/TAXII threat feed processors and a global IP threat database. Log360's real-time correlation engine can detect indicators of compromise and attacks across different resources in a network to help preempt security threats.

- User behavior analytics: Deter insider attacks thanks to the Log360 user behavior analytics module, which is powered by machine learning. It quickly spots user behavior anomalies such as abnormal user logons, logon failures, unusual user accesses to critical resources, and more.

- Streamlined incident management system: Track the resolution of detected incidents and ensure accountability in the incident resolving process with Log360's built-in incident management module. This module also supports raising tickets in help desk software - such as ServiceNow, ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus, JIRA, Zendesk and more - for every threat detected in the network.
